People living in and around seven proposed residents’ parking zones – to help create healthier and safer streets linked to Liveable Neighbourhoods plans – are being reminded to have their say by June 2 at 5pm.
The consultation, which has included a series of face-to-face events, ends next week on Thursday June 2 at 5pm.
The proposed schemes aim to tackle commuter parking and reduce vehicle intrusion into largely residential neighbourhoods, while also improving air quality and the environment for the local community.
People living in and around the zones, as well as anyone regularly travelling into them, can take part in an online survey at www.bathnes.gov.uk/rpzconsultation
Those without access to the internet can obtain further information and a printed questionnaire by calling Council Connect on 01225 39 40 41.
The proposed zones are:
- Chelsea Rd, Foxcombe Rd Area
- Lyme Gardens, Charmouth Rd Area
- Sion Hill, Summerhill Road Area
- Audley Grove, Edward Street, St Michaels Area
- Walcot, Snow Hill, Claremont Rd Area
- Entry Hill Area
- Beacon Hill Area
Following the consultation, the council will review the responses received and decide whether to proceed to the next stage, which is advertising the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for further comment or objections.
The residents’ parking zone proposals came out of several public consultations on the council’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme, and how the council can help communities to create healthier, safer streets. These seven are in addition to a proposed RPZ scheme for Oldfield Park and Westmoreland. More than 700 people have already shared their views in a consultation on this proposal, and the next step is the formal consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) later this summer.
